The ideology behind the introduction of television in Nigeria arose when citizens started complaining that they couldn’t gain access to some of the international and national television channels. Before now, most people used to mount their television antennas either on the top of their houses or even on trees just so that they can get reception. Even though they were doing this, it was still difficult to get those international (TSTV) stations due to the fact that the viewers were only allowed to view local channels and probably just a few national channels.
With the advancement of IT (Information Technology), and by introducing cable television, these preceding challenges have now been reduced drastically, thereby allowing you to gain access to but local and international television stations. Cable television clearly now owns the Nigerian market. The market as we know it has witnessed so many brands of cable television come into the industry.
